Con motivo del 80 cumpleaños de Woody Allen, Natalio Grueso, amigo íntimo del cineasta, escribe un libro cómplice y personal sobre el genio neoyorquino, imprescindible para la inmensa legión de seguidores que tiene en todo el mundo. Woody Allen es una de las personalidades más importantes de la cultura de nuestro tiempo. Cineasta, dramaturgo y escritor, tras Chaplin y Groucho Marx, es el último de los grandes maestros de la comedia y la inteligencia aplicada al séptimo arte. Este libro nos muestra al genio neoyorquino en su faceta menos pública y nos invita a conocer un Woody más cercano e íntimo a través de testimonios exclusivos de quienes han tenido el privilegio de conocerlo personalmente y trabajar con él a lo largo de su carrera: desde su pasión temprana por la magia y el humor hasta sus filias y fobias sobre cine, música o literatura pasando por anécdotas inéditas de sus rodajes y sus estancias en España. Algunas frases de Woody Allen: «Mi cerebro es mi segundo órgano favorito.» «La última vez que estuve dentro de una mujer fue cuando visité la Estatua de la Libertad.» «En Beverly Hills no tiran la basura, la convierten en televisión.» «Odio la realidad, pero es el único sitio donde se puede comer un buen filete.» «Más que vivir en el corazón de la gente, me gustaría seguir viviendo en mi apartamento.» «Por alguna razón me aprecian más en Francia que aquí. Los subtítulos deben de ser realmente buenos.» «No puedo escuchar tanto Wagner, ¿sabes? Me entran ganas de invadir Polonia.» «No es que tenga miedo a morirme, es tan solo que no quiero estar allí cuando suceda.» «Me interesa el futuro porque es el lugar donde voy a pasar el resto de mi vida.»

‘Il cervello è il mio secondo organo preferito’: così afferma Woody Allen in uno dei suoi celebri aforismi. Del resto, la parola più usata dalle decine di persone intervistate per la stesura di questo libro, alle quali è stato chiesto di definire uno tra i più amati cineasti del mondo, è stata ‘genio’. Gente che ha lavorato con lui o ha avuto l’opportunità di conoscerlo molto da vicino, persone che parlano con cognizione di causa, anche se ovviamente Allen non è d’accordo: ‘Io un genio? Allora cosa sono Shakespeare, Mozart o Einstein? No, no, sono solo un comico di Brooklyn che nella vita ha avuto molta fortuna’. Natalio Grueso racconta della gentilezza e grande umiltà del maestro, che, superati gli ottant’anni, non smette di dedicarsi a ciò che più ama – il cinema, la scrittura e il jazz – e rifugge i red carpet, considerando i premi oggetti fatti per ‘prendere polvere’. Un grande genio comico che ha debuttato come ghostwriter e come cabarettista prima di diventare il riferimento della cinematografia del ventesimo e ventunesimo secolo, senza dimenticare le sue origini e i grandi maestri che lo hanno forgiato quando si infilava nei vecchi cinema della sua giovinezza per ammirare i capolavori di Bergman e del neorealismo. Una passione, questa, che condivide con l’autore a cui è legato da una ventennale amicizia, che ha avuto il privilegio di seguire in prima persona la sua storia personale e professionale. Ne nasce un ritratto assolutamente inedito, intimo, sulla sua carriera, le sue fobie, i suoi hobby – tra cui una poco conosciuta passione per la magia – e sul suo modo di lavorare e concepire la vita.

Tim Burton is one of the great modern-day visionaries of cinema, a director who has fabricated his own deliciously nightmarish universe in movies as extraordinary as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, Mars Attacks! and The Nightmare before Christmas - not to mention his twisted takes on the tales of Batman, Sleepy Hollow and Planet of the Apes. Following the release of his re-imagining of Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with long-time comrade Johnny Depp (who also provides a new foreword here), this updated and fully illustrated new edition of the definitive Burton interview book casts light on Burton's Burbank childhood, his early work at Disney, the recurrent themes and stunning designs of his movies, and the creative obsessions that fuel them.

The New York Trilogy is perhaps the most astonishing work by one of America's most consistently astonishing writers. The Trilogy is three cleverly interconnected novels that exploit the elements of standard detective fiction and achieve a new genre that is all the more gripping for its starkness. It is a riveting work of detective fiction worthy of Raymond Chandler, and at the same time a profound and unsettling existentialist enquiry in the tradition of Kafka or Borges. In each story the search for clues leads to remarkable coincidences in the universe as the simple act of trailing a man ultimately becomes a startling investigation of what it means to be human. The New York Trilogy is the modern novel at its finest: a truly bold and arresting work of fiction with something to transfix and astound every reader. 'Marks a new departure for the American novel.' Observer 'A shatteringly clever piece of work . . . Utterly gripping, written with an acid sharpness that leaves an indelible dent in the back of the mind.' Sunday Telegraph 'The New York Trilogy established him as the only author one could compare to Samuel Beckett.' Guardian

Dip into this collection of fifty-two pieces for hilarity, deadpan weirdness, and some extremely outlandish ideas. Do you want to hear about the time Hitler went for a haircut? Or why Woody reveres Socrates? Have you ever wondered what would have happened if the Impressionists had actually been dentists? You can learn much about history âe" the piece on the invention of sandwiches is eye-opening âe" or modern life in this laugh-out-loud collection of thoughts, observations, diaries and stories from one of the most original minds and wonderfully comic voices of our time. âe~Itâe(tm)s no secret that Allenâe(tm)s short stories are just as entertaining and accomplished as his films . . . Allenâe(tm)s witty stories satirise contemporary society and classic modern literature in a style that is characteristically breathless, off the cuff and brilliantâe(tm) Observer
